Christmas Lights Switch On 2021
Our usual Christmas Lights Switch-On event is back this year with return visits from Santa in his Tuk Tuk, Aberdeen Chorus and Highland Alpacas on Saturday, November 20th, 2021 from 4-6pm, at the Cults Kirk Hub with games for children, carols and refreshments. Come along and raise funds for the ongoing Christmas lights costs.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates.
ACC Don't Fund The CBMCC Christmas Lights
Your Community Council secured funding for these lights from the generosity of our local businesses. Unfortunately, our Christmas light fund is dwindling. Although we own the lights, we have to pay for storage, maintenance, insurance, repairs, installation and removal, we are now fundraising to help secure the future of Cults Bieldside Milltimber Christmas lights.
If you enjoy the Christmas Lights please consider making a donation.
History of the Christmas Lights
During 2016, Community Councillor Lindsay Davidson embarked on an ambitious Christmas Lights Project with the aim of introducing new festive lighting into our community. Cults, Milltimber and Bieldside had no Christmas lights and no budget for this project, so Lindsay reached out to prominent local businesses and community stakeholders for sponsorship and was truly delighted to obtain sufficient sponsorship to fund our feature lights. These were mounted all along the North Deeside Road within our community and really brighten up the season for us all. In total there are 48 Christmas Lights but, due to works being done in 2020, 3 are not available to be mounted. Hopefully everything will be back in order this year and do get in touch if you'd like to help contribute to the future of the Christmas Lights.
